Morning – We spend our morning in training. We meet at a local church Monday through Friday. We meet from 9:30-12 each day. During that time we have a devotion, individual time to read, pray, and process through what you are learning, training and equipping in Greek ministry, etc.
Afternoon – The afternoon is flexible. This is your opportunity to meet with your discipler, read over materials, process with peers, and hang out on the beach!
Evenings – The evenings are full of variety. These are a few of the evening activities: Men and Women’s Time, Small Group, Time of Reflection, Praise and Worship, Prayer, Family Group Dinners, and Socials. You have one night a week that is free for you to enjoy Destin!
We will train you in everything from how to how to be satisfied in your relationship with God, to how to share your faith, to how to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, to how to build a Greek ministry, to how to lead small groups. We will also train you in how to have the most effective ministry back on campus through helping you create a vision and plan for your campus.
Our team consists of people from Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Mississippi. We will have students from those states and hopefully from other parts of the US as well. We are praying for 120 students to be there with us.
We will live in beach houses that are right across the street from the beach (Village at
Crystal Beach). You will live in a house with 10-12 other people. The houses are big, but you will be sharing a room with others.
The project provides three dinners a week, but the rest of the meals will be on your own. Each home has a kitchen so you can go to the grocery store and prepare meals at home. Also, there will be opportunities to go out to eat around Destin. Be sure to bring (or raise) money for meals!
The approximately $1350 you raise covers your living expenses, project fees, liability insurance, socials, three meals per week, any required activity that the project does as a whole, etc.
We give priority to students who will be able to attend the entire summer mission without leaving. If you need to leave, your request will be put before the leadership team and you’ll be placed on a waiting list and given a spot closer to the time of the summer mission as there are spots open.
